Gracie has worked in the industry for over 30 years and is renowned as a leading beauty expert whose work has glossed the faces of A-list celebrities including Johnny Depp, Sharon Stone, Liv Tyler, Jane Fonda, Hugh Grant and so many more.
“I have worked on many faces throughout my career and recognized early on that the secret to radiant skin lies in establishing a consistent skin care regime tailored to each individual’s needs. Over the years, my main ‘go-to’ line of skin care products has been La Mer. I use it on men and women. La Mer offers a range of products for all skin types that has no equal.”
THE STORY BEHIND THE CREATION OF LA MER
La Mer’s journey began when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in an experiment gone awry and set out to create his own destiny. Physicist by day, stargazer and dreamer by night, he hoped to unlock the healing power of the sea he held so dear. Inspired by the oceanic world, Huber fermented nutrient-rich sea kelp with other natural ingredients. 12 years and 6,000 experiments later, Crème de la Mer was born –and Huber’s skin visibly restored.
GRACIE’S PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS
- CRÈME, the moisturizing cream – This legendary moisturizing cream has the power to transform the skin. In a short time, firmness improves, lines, wrinkles and the look of pores become less visible. Even the driest complexions are renewed and rejuvenated revealing an ultra-rich, dewy finish. Crème de la Mer’s Miracle Broth™ is suspended within its extraordinary formula. To activate the broth and release its key ingredients, warm a small amount between your fingertips. As you pat onto clean, dry skin, you will instantly feel the soothing effects of the broth. Smooth over your face, neck, even under the fragile eye area. Apply day and night. *I recommend this cream for people with dry to normal skin.
- GEL, the moisturizing gel cream – The consistency of this gel cream is light and non greasy with an ultra-light, velvet finish, perfect for people with oily skin and/or to be used on normal skin in warm climates where a lighter moisturizer may be preferable. This cooling gel moisturizer is infused with a potent concentration of the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™. It delivers the same radiance, renewal and suppleness as the moisturizing cream, leaving skin deeply hydrated and refreshed. Pat a small amount between fingertips and press gently into skin.
- CONCENTRÉ, the eye concentrate – A deeply conditioning cream formulated with hematite, a magnetically-charged mineral, to help dramatically dissolve the appearance of dark circles, surface discoloration and unevenness. It reveals a visibly healthier, smoother and more luminous look over time. Dab a small amount onto the included applicator and gently sweep onto your eye area morning and evening.
- SERUM, the regenerating serum – This powerful age fighter accelerates skin’s natural renewal process to visibly diminish lines and wrinkles. In addition to containing the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, this potent serum is also powered by the Regenerating Ferment™, a bio ferment engineered with plant stem cells and the Marine Peptide Ferment, which help skin trigger its natural production of collagen, elastin and other “youth proteins.” Skin looks revitalized on contact and, over time, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores is dramatically diminished. To release key ingredients, shake gently, then tap several drops onto fingertips and sweep over face and neck morning and evening.
- CONCENTRÉ, the skin concentrate – A savior of skin, the Concentrate complements skin’s natural healing process. Designed to soothe visible irritation and redness caused by cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments, it is infused with a dose of highly concentrated Miracle Broth™. Irritation appears soothed and dry, fragile skin made strong for a radiant renewal. Thoroughly massage onto affected area at least twice per day. Do not use on fresh or open wounds.
